We Do It All!

Custom Fireplace Surrounds

Even though we install beautiful fireplaces, the overall hearth area can look a little bare and unfinished if the fireplace is there all by itself. This is why so many people add a handsome fireplace surround to their fireplace room. You can do it, too, and bring a magnificent look to your entire fireplace hearth area.

What Is a Fireplace Surround?

Fireplace surrounds, as the name implies, go around a fireplace on both sides and the top. Sounds basic, but it can be quite elaborate, depending on your decorative tastes.

Fire N’ Stone of Tilton, NH, specializes in custom natural and manufactured stone surrounds for fireplaces throughout New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. Our experienced masons can achieve any look you’re after while building your new surround in a way that ensures long-lasting beauty and function.

The design you choose for your fireplace surround can be fairly short and narrow, bordering the fireplace by just a few feet. Or, it also can take up the entire fireplace wall.

A variety of natural stone types can be used in your surround. We regularly work with:

  • Fieldstone
  • Ledgestone
  • Cobblestone
  • Round stone
  • River rock
  • Thin brick

and several others.

We also work with a variety of manufactured stone products from Boral Cultured Stone, a recognized leader in the stone industry.

The Look & Function of Your Fireplace Surround

Surrounds can be pure stone or brick throughout, or you can add shelving, mirrors, artwork and anything else that will further personalize your hearth area.

Our masons are experienced in working with all surround dimensions and odd corners and recesses within walls. No matter what your hearth area structure looks like now, we can transform it into a thing of beauty and elegance.

Another popular touch along with a new surround is a beautiful mantel. With a mantel, you have even more ways to personalize by adding photos, antiques, seasonal decorations, vases, floral arrangements and so much more. Finally, we can build you a gorgeous raised hearth to add the perfect finishing touch to your fireplace-area upgrade.
